Led Zeppelin - To Reunite For One Night Only


Classic Rock has just announced after much speculation that Led Zeppelin will reunite for a one-off special show at the O2 Arena in London on Monday, November 26.

The message on the Classic Rock website procedes:

"Tickets cost £125 each and will be available 'by ballot'. More details as we have it.

The bill also includes Pete Townshend, Bill Wyman & The Rhythm Kings, Foreigner and Paolo Nutini.

Founding members Jimmy Page (guitar), Robert Plant (vocals) and John Paul Jones (bass) will be joined by Jason Bonham, son of the late John Bonham, on drums.

The one-off performance has just been announced via a handout given to attendees at a press conference in the Vue cinema at the O2 complex. It's a memorial gig in honour of Ahmet Ertegun, the co-founder and longstanding chairman of Atlantic Records.

Ertegun, the man who signed Zep to Atlantic, died in December 2006 at age 83.

Profits from the show will go to Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund which provides students with annual scholarships to universities in the UK, USA and Turkey."

money, money, money


Uhh, charity gig? I severely doubt the band make that much money out of this-after all, their deal with Atlantic Records basically guaranteed the tidy little nest egg they have now...they don't need the money.

And I doubt that they'll do a reunion tour. After all, the only time they reunited before was for Live Aid, and after Phil Collins fucked up the drums for that set, they donated £2,000,000 to the cause in return for not having their set released.

Stewie: Cut my milk!
Butler: I can't sir, it's liquid.
Stewie: Imbecile! Freeze it, then cut it, and if you question me again I'll put you on diaper detail and I promise I won't make it easy for you.

I did read that Led Zeppelin is to consider a world tour after this.

Can you give us, the other Metalstormers, a source?

If not, we'll just have to disregard what you said.


I read it in some kind of magazine a time ago i cant remember which. But i think you are right and its al rumor. But its not wrong to dream of it

"So you children of the world, listen to what I say
If you want a better place to live in spread the words today
Show the world that love is still alive you must be brave
Or you children of today are Children of the Grave."

John Bonham's dead guys. Props to all who mentioned this important fact. Perhaps if Jimmy Page was a necromancer I'd pay that outrageous price. Assuming I'd find a way to London.

But ONLY if.

I should be dying to see them if I'd pay the ticket money plus the plane tickets....

Plus what does this effin "by ballot" mean? That I pay the money and then they'll see if I'll be lucky to get the ticket at all?
